Bathroom Update

Hi! The bathroom project is dragging along very slowly....I just haven't had the umph to keep it going. But, I wanted to share with you our progress...hopefully it will help kick us into gear!

Before update

Originally, when we started planning, I fell in love with this beautiful bathroom. After installing the new counters, sink, tile, faucet and mirror frame, I tried out 4 different neutral paints...none of them looked right, everything just looked washed out and faded...too many neutrals! Then one of my favorite bloggers, Layla from The Lettered Cottage, posted this fabulous faux reno.  I fell in love with both the shower curtain and the paint color on the totally changed my perspective.

I decided to bring that fabulous vanity color to the walls and find a similar shower curtain. I had a gift certificate from Kohl's left from Christmas, burning a hole in my purse, so I headed over and found this gorgeous treasure.

Then we headed over to Sutherland's to choose a paint color to match, we went with Seaside Accents.

We added a few
decorative accents, the
rug is from Kohl's and
painting is from Menard's.
After update
We've also been painting the storage cabinets and replacing the hardware.
Projects still in the works: replacing the door, replacing baseboards in sink area, painting the pocket doors, tearing out the rest of the tile in the second part of the bathroom, paint the second storage unit and trim.
Sorry it's taken so long to share our progress! What do you think???
